Regis Philbin emceed the night, which culminated in a throbbing dance-a-thon to Ashford and Simpson's blowout soul sounds. The Very Rich & Glitzy included gala chair Susan Hess, corporate chair Earl Graves, Gail and Carl Icahn, Anne Hearst, Muffie Potter Aston and Dr. Sherrell Aston, Cornelia and Marty Bregman, Nurit Kahane Haase, Freddie Fields, John and Andrea Stark, Elie Wiesel, Dr. Martin Citron, Burt and Judith Resnick, and Leona Helmsley, svelte and wrinkle-free, touting new beau Dr. Patrick Ward. I heard the hardest thing about going to the slammer for this 80-year-old billionairess was revealing her age… but don't shed tears for this Merry Widowshe's having a ball parading around her new boy-toy half her age. And talk about spectator sportsthe duo played tonsil hockey and footsie all night long, and later joined a select group for a late nightcap upstairs at Rick and Kathy Hilton's Waldorf spread.
